't want to view long-term solutions. they have to view short term for elections. with this sequester and families like we see oh "in american winter" it will probably get harder than it is already. >> i was shocked. completely shocked. they came up with a situation which was the worst case worst-case scenario for either side and then they went forward with it. things are so bad for citizens across the country i can't imagine what these cuts are going to do to families. i think there is a disconnect and inability to really look at what's going on. that's what we wanted to provide. we wanted to given a human face to what's going on in a families across the country. we did this in portland, but it's not about portland. it's about any city, any small town, any rural area. you can go anywhere and find families that are exactly like this. this is like garden variety poverty. this is not abject poverty. these families were comfortable many of them were middle class. then they lost their jobs. sometimes their jobs just disappeared. they got rid of all the people in their company and they cou
to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she no longer has a television contract. but the crowd still loved her. she had a lot of very funny jokes for this audience. among thelly not seen conservative activists as a politician so much anymore as sort of a thought leader in the movement or an entertainer is not the right word, but moving in that direction. host: and this is the headlines from "new york daily news." here is more with the former vice-presidential n
up to the 2014 primary elections. about 15 minutes. >>>> two years ago the president told a lie about the supreme court decision called citizens united. the case struck a huge blow. the president of citizens united is up next. he has proposed document series since 2004. please welcome david bossie. [applause] i'm president of citizens united. it has been a big year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. it is great to be back here as we come together for our 40th time. citizens united is doing it again this year, where we get a chance to show off some of the groundbreaking conservative films available today. conservatives need to think of new and innovative ways to develop and deliver our message to a broad our audience. one of those ways is through film. fellow conservatives, i am going. fall, but the conservative movement is as strong as ever. more voices are being heard here in this hall and across the nation because we are fighting for our rights and the traditional american values we all share. we believe in american exceptionalism, not obama's socialist agenda. unfortunately, so
win elections. that steve core knacky is 1-1. they hope to reverse the massive losses. over 6%, i'm told, of black voters back mitt romney. 6%, and that number seems high to me. you cannot win with number like that especially when people of color will soon be the majority in this country. also, our plans to improve communication wet voers while also cutting the number of presidential debates. why let you know what you really think. they want to move the convention earlier in the summer so they can tap into cash sooner. that's a great idea. and there is a push to close the digital media and tech gaps and all this sounds easily achievable if you listen to preebus. >> we know we have problems. we've identified them and we're implementing the solutions to fix them. to be clear, our principles are sound. we will do a better job of connecting with people, to our principles, showing how we can help every american climb the economic ladder. especially in communities we haven't been in a long time, but b what it means to be paubl. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, comm
winners for us. what we found in the election is while we're winning the arguments on spending and math, we're losing sort of this emotional cultural vote out there in presidential elections. and it didn't just happen overnight, luke. i mean the fact is our parties have a tough time over the last 24 years winning decisive presidential elections. and it's our job as a party to get to the bottom of why that is. and that's what we're trying to do. so, you know -- >> okay. let's talk about that emotional cultural vote. your predecessor said this this morning on "morning joe" about the issues you have in minority community. >> how does he reconcile his agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist? you can show up any time. it's what you say and what do you when you get there that matters most to people. >> so the former chairman steel is attacking you right there saying that you're not doing enough in terms of minority outreach, that it's not a real serious plan on your guys' part because of the voter id law supported a lot of swing s
in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look at what has happened since gavin newson signed gay marriage in law, he performed the ceremonies himself there and made it legal, look how much things have ink changed in one decade. do you think it

to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
release their autopsy on the 2012 election. it turns out they say that voters basically see them as clint eastwood's character in gran torino. also they are really bad at technology and they debate too much, they are failing math and have no friends, but besides all of that, shipshape. i'm michael shure this is "the war room." [♪ theme music ♪] >> michael: the republicans are taking a serious look at why they have become such an unserious party in the eyes of the american people. as the conservative pep rally that was cpac finally wrapped up this weekend, reality seem stoetd in. republican leaders took a look in the mirror and beheld their hideous reflection. they realized they better get their campaign on and lost that bet. and really how can anyone take a party seriously who's biggest contribution to the conversation were 47%, self deportation and shuting that whole thing down. and all of that shrinking about greece and the looming debt crisis. here is john boehner and paul ryan just this weekend. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> america
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
. but i feel confident he will never win a national election in this country. they are showcasing their fringe. if you are a normal person in the middle, you're not a raging conservative, you're going to look at that parade of people and wonder what this party is all about. they seem to be on the wrong side of every issue. some of the leadership is struggle to go redefine the party. but they want to do it without changing anything. i think the party is really looking at a dead-end for the moment. >> michael: yeah, it does seem so. let's listen to reince priebus chairman of the republican national community talking at cpac about his own party. >> we need to bring that spirit of unity that we had two weeks ago every day as a party and a movement because if we're going to win more elections we have to grow this party. >> michael: spirit of unity david? >> well, i'm wonder it wondering if they were so concerned about unity why were the other gay republicans denied a platform because they're so concerned about the sanctity of marriage and donald trump who has been married three times.
: i certainly knew about it. we had not seen anyone look at it in the 2012 election cycle. decided toe and i take a snapshot. it is something i have heard about. it has come up from time to time. in fact, it used to be back before they changed ethics rules about a decade ago in congress, there were relatives .n official payrolls so that has changed some. here are some other members of that "usa today" mentions. the democrat of virginia congressman paid his daughter when hundred $5,000 -- thousands of dollars in bonuses. that amount -- guest: much smaller in terms of doug's payment. a spokeswoman said he was looking for someone else to do the job. $33,000.d about the practice is not limited to veteran lawmakers. the idaho republican congressman who was elected in 2010 put his wife on the payroll. a few months after he got sworn in, may 2011, she earned about $41,000 over a two-year. -- timeframe. host: democrat line, welcome. john? manchester, new hampshire, independent line. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. , thank you foren reporting the facts. i believe almost ever
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very telling. because particularly joe biden is someone who understands the math of the senate you've just laid out. john, do we, at this point, so now the big piece of the bill now appears to be background checks. can you give me your assessment of the political landscape? does that and the other few things that are a
in the election and is now in the government said we don't need-- a second palestinian state. that isn't new thinking. and he said very pointedly, people can't be occupiers in their own land. in order, he was rejecting the ideaçó that israelis don't have the right to live anywhere they want in the entire territory. today i talked to ashwari, a palestinian very prominent, still member of the p.l.o. executive committee and she said we don't need new language and thinking we need new will and courage by the united states and palestinians were widespread in their disappointment with the trip because they felt that the president had really embraced the israeli kind of view of this conflict, and had not expressed a willingness to press for some free zone settlement. it does not mean something may not happen. but you could see that new thinking is going to come hard in this region of a very old conflict. >> margaret warner, thank you very much, joining us from amman. >> brown: still to come on the "newshour": chicago's plans to shutter public schools; the growing gap on how internet access is bei
, and the republican national committee just out with a report, they are calling it the autopsy of the 2012 election. and they said we would have won if only we did a better job of getting our message out. good to have you with us and we're ready to give you a chance to join the conversation any time. give us a call at 866-55-press or join us on twitter -- actually you ought to do both, but if you want to talk to us on twitter, it's @bpshow, and on facebook, facebook/billpressshow. we are so excited this morning to welcome back to the studio. every once in a while we want to show that we are real people care. we really do care about sports. cindy is in studio again this morning. thanks for coming in. it's an exciting time we're ready to do our brackets this morning. >> i already have torn four of them up. this is one of those years where you are better to wait two minutes before tip-off and just filling it out and sending it in. and spend like two seconds on it. you can overthink this year. that's my theory. >> bill: all right. we're here with our whole team. of course we're coming
is perhaps the most important event in the election.paign, the april 5, 2014. we can talk about what role isaf will have in that. they will provide unprecedented and unparalleled security to this election. isaf's numbers draw down, setting the conditions for the enduring presence force, nato is when the college resolute, setting the conditions will the terms of the capabilities and locations of the platform so that force can be ready to go on the first of january 2013, fully integrated with the afghans in terms of the advisory relationship they will have. 2013 is the year to set the conditions for 2014. 2014 will be the year return and eight i -- will be the year where we terminate the isaf mission. >> i would ask those of you who like to speak to bring up some of the other central issues such as our relationship with president carter side. karzai.president this is a two part question building on what you just said. i would like asking a simple down-to-earth basic question, do the afghan party -- to the afghan army and police fight? the strategy is very well constructed and you have had
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
to be sure that the man you're electing is free to do the ministry. in that freedom, there will be renewal. >> we appreciate your time very much this morning. >> thank you, david. good being with you. >> thank you. i'm joined by a roundtable, our republican strategist, anna navarro, chris matthews, former lieutenant governor of maryland and author of "failing america's faithful" kathleen townsend, and former chairman of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops review board, frank keating. welcome to all of you. kind of a setup of a joke, a nice jewish boy moderating a discussion on catholics. when a church needs reform, as this one does, you know back to jesus christ. you felt that very strongly? >> i think one thing that unite all catholics is concern for the poor, and this basic way that jesus led his life. he was a jewish guy. if you can agree on that, the rest is easy. 3,000 years ago, the rest is sort of details. i think we have to go back. not that it should be reformation, but the idea of looking out for the poor and being humble. and loving each other. i mean, it's very basic, very
and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections. >> i had to win in 2009 and christie and bob mcdonald, blue states and purple states, we laid down a 50-state plan. >> bill: as a former party chair of the state of california what do you people remember whether you won or lost. that's what counts. not if you happen to have a little deficit, and in fact michael steele went on to say when we were handing out checks i don't believe reince priebus complaining. >> so reince is just being silly. and i understand he wasn't complaining about debt and concerned about debt when i was write checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and he wanted to win the legislature and governor which they did and they were all on board about going into debt to win. >> when did republicans turn into democrats. it's all overshadowed and sabotaged by infighting. >> bill: this is the circular firing squad for which republicans are famous. grace nap ol 'tano will be with here today, neil king, and of course you'll be with us too throughout the morning, and mike i w
as a democrat in their home state of south carolina. this was the first actual election you actually got involved in? >> yeah, yeah, this is the first one. >> reporter: i don't think anyone would begrudge you -- >> for my sister. >> reporter: trying to help your sister. >> exactly. she's my sister, and i'm willing to, you know, break the jewel of my own creation to try to do something for her. like, i'm not worried what it would do to me or my show to try to help her as myself, not as my character, and to help her as myself. you know, if people think that's not the right thing for me to do, i don't care. it's my sister and i'm willing to help her. >> reporter: you think she'd be a good public servant? >> i've met these people. and my sister, she's in the top decile. >> reporter: if she wins tomorrow's primary, her republican opponent could very well be former governor marc sanford who resigned amid scandal in 2009. >> the bottom line is this. i've been unfaithful to my wife. >> reporter: mark sanford is favored. >> the former governor of the appalachian trail. >> reporter: yes, is favore
elected as national congressman. you had very little access of black people to elite universities. you have almost exclusively a white felise department not only in the bay area but most cities in the country. and exclusions from the political apparatus and machines. so on a local level in this moment of civil rights the legality was that there was little institutional recourse. so people were asking, how do we deal with the civil rights movement? how do we stand up and make businesses and create a source of power? and bobby seale and huey p. newton figured out a way to do that by standing up to police brutality. initially those armed patrols were completely legal. they have studied the law and they knew what distance they needed to stand. when the guns could not be loaded in the cars and when a felon could not carry a handgun and all the very specific legislation around when and where it was legal and they emulated tactics done in l.a. and started to patrol the police and stand up. this is true of the local following. young adults who said that his power. that is standing up. we are g

democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
, including san francisco began granting licenses to same sex couples. on election night, as they elected the first african-american president of the united states, born of an interracial marriage, on that night california voters chose president barack obama and passed proposition 8. stripping same sex california couples of their freedom to marry. which is what made this moment so extraordinary. president obama who just a few months before had articulated his own support for marriage equality stood on the steps of the capitol immediately after taking the oath of office for the second time and articulated that lbgt rights are part of the freedom and fairness in america. >> we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through selma and stone wall. >>> so here in nerdland with us to mark this moment in the struggle is california congresswoman and senior democratic whip, barbara lee. alongside the great kenji yoshi yoshino, professor at new york's university law school. lisa d
if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high on a plug. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession in come on it went down $5,000 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won freckly at a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. allowed obamaple to define romney. romney thether than fighting romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say what did we do wrong. the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape certainly -- i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republi
election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing.

out cyprus? melissa: why? what is the answer? >> it is germany. angela merkel is up for re-election and if she bends over and gives money to cyprus without capital controls she is likely to lose the election in the fall. i was talking about this one of the big risks to resurgence in the eurozone crisis. the guy behind her is against bailouts, period. it could bring the whole euro crisis to a head late this summer. melissa: jacob, go back to the idea what they will do with the money in the banks first before we tackle why the e.u. is getting involved. if they do that, convert deposits into cds so people cat get them out and do these things they will talk about putting this tax on deposits, what happens from there? what's the fallout? imean that's a big deal? >> well, i think capital controls at this point is inevitable because even if, even if there is a deal, unless you have capital controls, there is going to be a massive is run on these banks the minute they open. but again, i mean we need to look at what is the alternative here? if you don't do the levy over 100,000 euros, you kn
there since resigning last month citing his age but he's been following francis' election as pope and inauguration before the huge crowds in rome. time for politics. we start with one of my favorite topics. the budget. earlier this morning while you were sleeping the senate passed a budget that came at the end of a marathon session of amendment votes. welcome to both of you this saturday morning. okay. the democrats budget bill passed at 5:00 a.m. 5:00 a.m. and it passed by one single vote. mostly it's symbolic. how big of a deal is this? >> finally we can get on with our lives. no. i think actually in all reality the only thing it really does is take off the table a huge republican talking point that they've had for three years complaining that democrats haven't passed a budget. now it really focuses on the real work ahead which is let's pass something that is real that is based on solutions where both democrats and republicans can come together to figure out how we move forward with the big problems that we're facing and i think that's going to be the real battle, christine. we'
is that, it depends on you are going obamacare, as you say. the american people spoke in the election that they did not want that repealed, but you continue to do that. i think it is dishonest. i heard you earlier when you stated that you are not even a part of that. you guys did not want to participate in forming that deal. what is sad about it, it is part of something you republicans wanted to do years ago. i feel that you guys, both sides, are fighting the american people. it is unfortunate, because we're the ones that sent you guys there, and you act like you are not working for the people and your job is to work for the people. .uest: i cannot agree more thanks. the president's health care law, and i rarely call it obamacare. the president calls it obamacare, i do not. i call it the president's health care law or the aca. please hear me, this law, the current law will harm, i believe as a physician, will harm the ability of your dr. to take care of you. that does not make any sense to me. it is important, when we believe that is the case, we would be irresponsible if we do not pr
of civil rights that you had only six congressmen, nationally who had been elected as national congressmen. you had very little access of black people to elite universities. you had almost exclusively white police departments not only in the bay area, but in most cities in the country. and fire departments. and exclusion from the political apparatus and machines, right? but on a local level, there was very little electoral representation. so in this moment the reality was that there was very little institutional recourse, right? and so people were asking how do we, how do we do what the civil rights movement did? how do we through standing up and making businesses possible, how to we do that? now, initially, those armed patrols were completely legal. they had studied the law, they knew at what distance they needed to stand, when the guns could not be loaded in the cars, that a felon could not carry a handgun. all the very specific legislation around when and where it was legal, and they emulated some tactics that were being done in l.a. and started to patrol the police and stand up. and in
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un
knows what is happening in jordan and you have a new israel government elected not to make peace or more but simply deal with the orthodox in the israel society. this is the most unripe situation for diplomacy any american president has walked into. >> mike, this american president, i think, has bent over backwards to be an honest broker between the israelis and palestinians and he did so in a way that actually angered the israelis. so hamas launches rockets into israel while the president is there and what do they do? they actually push away a guy that, again, is trying to be an honest broker. >> yeah, he has tried to be an honest broker and paid a price to it to some extent in domestic politics. what do you think of the theory, it's more than a theory, i would guess, that this trip is based largely less on policy than the president's personality, convincing the israelis and the israeli government that i am your friend. the united states is your friend. we are not going to falter or hesitate or anything when it comes to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the
or she would like it to be a better country. you think? there are some that get managed to be elected to congress who secretly hope to bring this country down. i suppose that's possible. but don't count on a bunch hearings or high profile probes to do the job of finding them. i have to say that we've been here before. been there before. congresswoman bachmann, been there done that. nobody who remembers him wants very much to see it all happen again. thank god. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show," starts now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm eric michael dyson. after a decade of war,er with still uncovering lies that led us into conflict with iraq. turns out union busting governor john kay sick won't support unions either. ceo of starbucks serves up support for minimum wage increase. reverend jesse jackson joins me on public schools. >>> but first, bowling for columbine, i will ask michael moore why the need for gun control is even more urgent. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> we begin with an
have a poll in the last two weeks from quinnipiac university which shows that 47%/43%. on election day in the network exit poll 49%/46%. >> hilary rosen -- >> it's clearly moved but the idea the american people are, you know, universally for same sex marriage is just not backed up. >> one of the things you look at, hilary, the youth vote. those who supported that poll, 81% under 30 support marriage equality. where are we as the supreme court takes this up? >> well, and another interesting part about the youth vote, unlike a lot of other issues that ralph works on, the evangelical yaut, according to alex lundry, mitt romney's data analyst, over 60% of evangelical youth support gay marriage. this has taken over the tide. i think the supreme court as good citizens as they are, are really going to decide this case based on what's fair and right based on the constitution, which is, is there a rational reason to treat two sets of loving couples differently under the law? >> david brooks, the country is divided. there are 41 states that either ban it or treat gay marriage as something differe
that's going to change her election. she's worried about louisiana. she's worried about getting re-elected in that state. and until you see the zeitgeist change within the state, these politicians are not responsive to that. where bloomberg can make a huge difference is he can go into a local race, a congressional district, he can go in on a state. when mary landrieu starts seeing bloomberg money against her, then i think she might change her mind. >> let's talk about bloomberg money. as if he's got bloomberg money. "the new york times" quotes thomas mann from brookings, said the $12 million in advertising was unlikely to influence the outcome of the legislation, unless lawmakers were convinced that mr. bloomberg would open his wallet again after the vote, both to reward those who supported the bill and to punish those who did not. that's absolutely key, said mann. what do you make of that? >> i think that makes sense. in the immediate environment we're in today, one of these media campaigns can be a flash in the pan. but i think this is a long game and think it's a long game for good reas
